I think you're gonna be just fine, little man.

Just as well you're so cute, wee man! #3amwakeup #autism #sleepdisorders #asd #sleeppoblems  


As we were walking home from nursery today, something clicked with me.

I have this feeling that you are going to be a-okay little man.

You're so bright, and you're starting to try to be much more verbal lately.

You're absolutely hilarious with your joking around, and are becoming a pretty sociable little guy.

You see the world in a very different way to most of us.

And I know it's hard for you to take sometimes, but you're doing so well at learning how to handle new situations, at meeting new people, at coping with life in general.

We still have tough bits of course.

You still hate the word no, and don't like to not get what you want, but I figure, in some ways you're kind of going through the terrible twos at the moment, so I know that'll pass.

Did I mention how smart you are??

Cause you really are.

And for the first time, in a long time, I'm starting to have hope that you may be able to lead a pretty good life as you get older.

I know, it sounds kind of weird saying it that way, but for so long you were so exhausted and in hate with everything, I didn't know how you'd deal with the big wide world.

Now I'm starting to see that, you know what? You're going to be just fine.

And that, my little man, is a very good feeling to have.

Love you lil dude!
